There’ll be an 8th Day Host to help it all go smoothly, and if you’re on your own and never done any of our trips before then don’t worry, it doesn’t take long to get to know everyone (usually about 5 minutes at the pub in the airport!)

COST – £749pp – an £80 discount! (upgrade to full board is £90pp. Single rooms are an extra £370 (on;y 2 available), and after that single supplements are £520) This is based on twin share of a standard twin room, and includes flights, transfers, meals on a half-board basis, and activities as below. Certain courses will cost extra, let us know if you’re not sure when booking!

Watersports – Overview

You can’t beat our top-notch watersports centre at Levante Beach Resort. Combine excellent conditons, an expansive sailing area with a team of exceptional, qualified instructors and a vast amount of sailing and windsurfing courses, clinics and new foiling instruction to keep you entertained out on the water. Explore the local coastline on a kayak or SUP board or hang out under the water with our PADI dive team who will show you the best dive sites around the island.   

Sailing

Take to the water in one of our dinghy boats. Choose from singlehanders to multihulls. If this sounds like another language then let one of our qualified instructors introduce you to the exhilirating world of dinghy sailing. We have an array of courses and lessons from free introduction to sailing lessons to RYA qualifications and for those more experienced on the water, we are offering dinghy foiling too.

Windsurfing

This all-round resort is great for windsurfers, especially intermediates. Beginners will excel in the light morning winds and can practice their balance and control while intermediate windsurfers take to the waters in the afternoons as the winds pick up for some great blasting across the bay with new windsurf hydrofoils. Our team of qualified instructors provide group or private tuition.

Stand up paddle boarding

This fast growing sport is fun and easy to learn (unlike surfing!) and what’s more you will benefit from a strong ‘core’ workout. Within an hour or two you will find you are more than comfortable on your board on the water.

SUP boarding as it is often referred to can be done in a variety of conditions. When learning, flat calm conditions are recommended. Starboard SUP boards are available for use free of charge.

Kayaking

Why not gain a different perspective of your resort! Hit the beach and take a kayak out to sea and enjoy the views, peace and chance to explore the coastline. 

Waterskiing & wakeboarding

The warm waters of the Aegean Sea and range of equipment provided contribute to creating an excellent learning environment. It is commonplace for Mark Warner guests to progress from rank beginner to an intermediate standard within the space of a week. Waterskiing and wakeboarding is offered on a ‘pay as you go’ basis at Levante Beach Resort.

Scuba diving

An island fashioned by ancient volcanic activity, the underwater world of Rhodes is defined by magnificent topography and a touch of the unusual. The tranquil Aegean Sea (and not the Mediterranean as many would expect), with its stunningly clear water, is a pleasure to experience.

Discover its hidden treasures: colourful nudibranchs feeding on an abundance of sponges, barracuda schools, curious blennies, octopus and grouper.
